Came across the lookbook.nu page of blogger Moti Ankari today. He blogs via themetro-man.com. Very stylish looks. Definitely worth checking out if you’re a guy looking for ideas to improve your style or if you’re a girl looking for ideas to help your guy improve his style. Note to ladies: Suggesting to your guy how he should dress could come off a little on the controlling or mothering side. So only help your guy if he has asked for your help and if you have a keen enough sense of style when it comes to men’s fashion to justify your input.

How to wear a navy suit

1

You will first need to have a navy suit jacket and matching trousers. It’s not necessary for it to be our featured selection Paul Smith Navy wool mohair blend formal suit which is a bit on the pricey side and possibly a bit more formal than needed.

You will need a burgundy sweater. It doesn’t necessarily have to be a v-neck sweater although the v-neck definitely helps to give Moti’s look a laid back casual appeal.

Hello, I'm Adela Lewis aka singer songwriter Adelamonica. I am the founder, creative director, editor in chief and main writer for avenuesixty.com. First let me say, I myself cringe at some of the things I've written on this blog. It is completely embarrassing to realize how miserably I've been failing to hide the fact that I lack sophistication, and often times lack enlightenment. I wish I had never written half the things I've written on here, but I did write them. To be clear, I am just a regular person who enjoys writing. I refer to myself as "editor in chief" and "creative director" because, owning the blog as I do and being the one who creates and edits the content (except for content submitted by guest contributors), I feel that I have the freedom to do so. But I am not an editor and there is currently no staff that I oversee. Via this blog, I am contributing my personal thoughts and ideas and beliefs to everyday topics of discussion--at times topics on which I am not particularly well informed, but about which I might still have a point of view--much like most other people on the planet . The things I write should be regarded in the light of diary/journal style and essay style writings, reviews and reports exploring the topics I attempt to discuss. Please recognize that I have no academic or other professional qualifications and I do not represent my points of view as carrying any weight or having anything of significant value to contribute to serious discussions held by qualified persons on any topic featured. I apologize in advance for any errors major or minor that I make in my writing (I have made some embarrassing errors), anything I write that can be perceived as an offense or that is otherwise insensitive or needlessly critical and disparaging of any person.
